1 Introduction

Distel is a set of Emacs-based programs for interacting with running Erlang nodes. The purpose is to make everyday Erlang programming tasks easier – looking up function definitions, debugging and profiling, experimenting with code snippets, and so on. It builds on the existing erlang-mode to provide more of the features common to Integrated Development Environments.

This manual describes Distel from the user's point of view. For details on how Distel works and how to write your own Distel-based programs, see the paper Distel: Distributed Emacs Lisp (for Erlang) from the proceedings of the 2002 Erlang User Conference.
